Lemony, nutty, Couscous

I love Couscous. Its one of those ingredients that pretty much makes itself. Its incredibly forgiving and takes on the flavours of the ingredients you use with it and works equally well as a salad or as part of a hot meal. This is one of my longest serving side dishes – to go along…

My blue cheese spiked Waldorf salad

I’ve had a hankering for Waldorf salad for a week now. I don’t know where it’s come from but I reckon as a lunchtime meal it’s a much better alternative, for me, to sarnies but it a little more filling than a plain old salad. But as usual I want more!! and in order to elevate…

Day Five – Fishcakes and Salad

Ok I’ll admit, tonight was a challenge!! We went out for our work offsite today which ended in a free bar, and continued on for HOURS. This meant that being in the middle of Brighton with access to all those takeways was almost too much for me to bear! But as luck would have it…

I’ve got a big bag of salad….Now what?

My top five workday lunches

One thing I’ve been trying to avoid since I went back to being office-bound 5 days a week is falling into the old routine of sarnies & crisps for lunch, but It’s not easy!! When you are knackered and in a rush all you want is something simple to make but I’ve spent too much…

My super fast lemon pepper chicken & med veg salad

Lots of my Flabulous friends do what I used to do, throwing out lots of excuses when it comes to eating healthier. Excuses like… “I haven’t got the time”, “its too much effort!”, “its easier to order in or throw a ready meal into the oven”. One of my problems has been that healthy food…
